Monochromatic BLACK/GRAY Artist Trading Coins

This is the tenth in the color coin series.

This round your coins need to be mostly BLACK/GRAY There can be minimal amounts of other colors.

Swap Requirements:


Coins need to have a diameter of 2.5 inches. If you do not have a 2.5 circle die or punch, please make sure you cut your circles neatly. They do not have to be perfect, but they should not look sloppy.
Original artwork only
3:3 (hostess cards are never a requirement, but would be treasured)
Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope. I am going to do my best to swap effort for effort.
Please make sure your coins are sturdy. They need to be thicker than just one sheet of card stock.
Each coin needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each coin.


Mailing:


US Participants – Please include a legible SASE.
International Participants - Please include a mailing label with your address clearly written or typed. I will provide an envelope for returns for all international players. Please include a well concealed US dollar bill or US global forever stamp.
Please make sure to package your coins securely. We don't want these wonderful works of art to get banged up in the mail.
When you are ready to send in your coins, please send me a private message for my mailing address (if you need it ~ I'm at the same address that I've been at since joining AFA). Also, please post in the thread when you send in your coins, so I can be on the lookout.
Make sure your coins are mailed in time to be in my hands on or before the due date.




It is always fun and inspiring when artists share their artwork in the thread, so feel free to do so!

When you receive your coins, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received artwork from.

Who's ready for BLACK/GRAY?

01-04-2020, 05:34 PM
Uh oh, if that happened with a couple of them it must be my packaging. I don't think they had anything textured that would've snagged. Where they too bendy?

CherylS
01-04-2020, 09:57 PM
Iíve never had a problem with your packaging. The envelope was a bit bent where the 3 pockets meet.. but it was slit on the edge. It may have been someone looking for money.

Laffqueen
01-04-2020, 10:55 PM
Mine also was ripped along the bottom seam. I’ve never had a problem either. I would say something at the post office that scanned them. Not to worry, I got great cards from prep, zandrazee and Beverly
